The Front Porch Library gathered around one of our well-used folding card tables; just me, Mr. John, Vivienne, and Brianna, but what we lacked in numbers we made up for in enthusiasm. We began with word games. First, the one that is like a giant word search that uses transparent place holders that look a lot like contact lenses. Okay, it is not a popular as Scrabble, but we liked it…
For the second game, I brought my three jars: nouns, verbs, and adjectives. We drew one from each jar and constructed stories, acted words out, then told stories in which we had to guess which of the words used were drawn out of the jars.
Then we hung out with Fredbrick, the brick child Vivienne and Klark created. He was as taciturn as ever so we gave up on him fast, then drew pictures and ate cake. Laughed a lot too. Always a good way to spend a late Sunday afternoon.
